Group name: Cheshire Walkers
This group is a part of North and Mid Cheshire Area.
Our activities include:
Groups aimed at people in their 20s and 30s, Groups aimed at people in their 40s
Our groups help local people enjoy walking and protect the places we all love to walk. Most groups organise regular walks led by local experts – a great way to get outside, make new friends and discover how walking boosts your health and happiness. You’re very welcome to try walking with us, or to get involved in looking after paths and green spaces and opening up new places to explore.
Cheshire Walkers is a friendly, welcoming walking group covering North & Mid Cheshire and the surrounding area. We have members throughout Cheshire, Greater Manchester, Merseyside and North Wales
Who are we?
Formed in 1999, and originally a 20s-30s group, we are a walking group affiliated to the Ramblers and part of the North & Mid Cheshire Area. As time has moved on, we have dropped the age restriction and anybody is welcome to walk with us. In practice, most of the regulars in the group are 30s-40s.
What do we do?
We organise a range of walks from short gentle rambles to longer mountain climbs that could include some scrambling and so there should be something to suit all abilities. The walks are mostly in Cheshire, Lancashire, the Peak District and Lake District, North Wales and the Yorkshire Dales. They are mostly on Sundays with some on Saturdays and the occasional mid week short evening walk in the summer.
We also have social events on a regular basis - these are organised by the members and advertised on walks or by email.
We organise weekends away at regular intervals through the year. We normally book places in a youth hostel, but try to organise them so that alternative such as B&Bs and campsites are available for those who want more or less comfort! The locations for our weekends away include the Lake District, Scotland , North Yorkshire North Wales and further afield.
If you would like to walk mid week all year round please note some of the other groups in the North & Mid Cheshire Area do organise mid week walks on a regular basis.
Come and try us out!
You are welcome to join us for 2 or 3 walks before joining.
After a few walks, and once you've joined the Ramblers, you can be added to our email list by emailing a commitee member.
